2023: PDP SPEAKS ON ZONING OF PRESIDENCY AS GOVERNOR UMAHI IS SET TO DEFECT TO APC.

Gov. Dave Umahi

The Peoples Democratic Party National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, reacting to reports that the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, was planning to defect to the All Progressives Congress, insisted that there have been no discussions on the zoning of candidates in the 2023 general elections.



CRIMECHANNELS gathered that Ologbondiyan stated this when he appeared as a guest on Arise TV on Monday.

He said that Governor Umahi believes that the APC would protect the interest of the South-East in the 2023 elections.

However, Ologbondiyan admits the concerns raised by the Governor as it relates to the fate of the South-East in the next presidential election were genuine.

His statement reads, “The concerns raised by Governor Umahi as it affects the South-East, the party believes are genuine concerns. And when the time comes and all the variables are considered, and all the issues are taken into consideration, the party will take its decision.”

“PDP is not a party that can be stampeded. We are not a party that takes decisions on the impulse of one or two individuals. We are a structured political party. We have our various organs and decisions as important as the zoning of the number one office is not a decision that can be taken at a sitting; it is a decision that must be taken round all the interests and the organs of our party. We haven’t even started the discussion, that’s the honest truth.”





“But concerns are being raised and the party is also studying all the concerns. I believe all these will come into play when the party wants to make a decision but as we speak, we have not reached that level,” Ologbondiyan stated.
